Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Will not Fill

My washing machine starts to fill with water but for only 30 seconds and then abruptly stops. The machine does continues through a full cycle. But without water!!! My only problem is that the washer never fills completely with water!! I know that it is getting water since it does start to fill, but never for more than 30 sec. Your help is appreciated!!! We have had two service companies out here, they have changed the Pressure Switch and the control board but the same problem still exsists. They have blown out the pressure switch hose and it seems to be clear. Any othe suggestions as Whirlpool was not much help to the tech.

    Hi,

    It was actually the pump-motor as it was not pulling the water to recirculate. The motor was clogged with fabric.

    Thanks,

    For all your help.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THOSE TWO ITEMS THAT WERE REPLACED SHOULD HAVE RECTIFIED THE PROBLEM.ONE NEEDS TO KNOW IF THE BOARD THAT IT WAS TESTED WAS IN EFFECT A NEW ONE OR NOT. IF IT WAS I WOULD SUGGEST DISCONNECTING ONE HEATER WIRE (IF HEATER IS USED) THEN PULLING THE PR.SWITCH PIPE OFF FROM THE TUB AND SUCKING A VACUME ON THE PIPE. THIS WILL INDICATE A LOW LEVEL CONDITION AND ASK FOR MORE WATER.IF FILLING TIME IS THEN RUNS FOR A LONGER PERIOD, THEN THE PROBLEM IS WITH A DEFECTIVE PR.SWITCH. HOPE I HELPED?

I have a MAYTAG legacy Series manine. That i just bought from a retailer. My machine is connected to a cold water tap. can i still get a hot water wash if i select a warm or hot cycle? Secondly,...


hello bz... there can be no hot water wash or hot cycle without hooking up a hot water supply line. Also, you must plug that hot water inlet, the correct plug is available at most hardware stores. Finally, yes it is normal for the machine to stop before draining, as the transmission shifts. If the machine is very noisy, that is not normal. To reduce that noise you could put the machine on a piece of thick carpet to deaden the noise a bit. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling


could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.

You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).

Starts to fill and then stops, and the cycle continues on.


Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back
